Blue Jacket Books offers a carefully selected inventory of roughly 20,000 used and out-of-print books in many fields and disciplines, but we specialize in the fine arts, in the social sciences and humanities, in Modern First Editions, in Americana, and especially in the American Civil War. We carry rare, antiquarian, and collectible items, as well as books for pleasure-reading and research. Most of our inventory is used, but we have a selection of new titles of local and special interest, including of local authors who have in our store read from their new works. We regularly purchase libraries, estates, and personal book collections, as well as individual books of value. We are located in what was for a long time the Xenia Daily Gazette building in historic downtown Xenia, Ohio, about 20 minutes east of Dayton, and that was for many decades the S.S. Kresge department store. If you can't find what you're looking for here, where we have listed nearly 8,00 books, we invite you to contact us directly.

long, etc.), I may contact you to let you know that extra shipping is
required. Bubble mailers and boxes will be expertly and securely wrapped and
monitored. Please contact us if there is anything extra or different you
need us to do.
